flypig>Man it's all speculation isn't it anyway. PW seemed to be keen on OpenSourcing RO, yet was trying to sell his shares which would remove his ability to influence that decision surely. It was also hinted (I believe) on Drobe that RO Open might be buying the shares. Surely the best way for PW to influence Castle's deliberations surely would be to do so *while he held onto the shares*, once sold his influence would be zero. If on the other hand he was actively promoting Open Sourcing RISC OS then this had got us no further than having Castle "consider" doing so, I can't believe anyone else purchasing the shares would do any better.

And in the end, in any event, Castle could *still* decide to say "nope we're fine with things as they are", 25% of shares don't outvote 75% of shares last time I checked.
